Strangers in the night
Today I had coffee with a young lady I met rather randomly on the no.8 bus!
Though I have to admit it’s not the first time I’ve gone off with relative strangers.
See I have had a practice run…whilst in South Africa I quite literally bumped into a stranger in a supermarket.We exchanged mobile numbers and a week later I drove to her house for tea.Needless to say my family were horrified and insisted on giving me codes for when they called after 45minutes.I didn’t see her again after that visit…strangely random!
This is something I’ve learned since moving to the uk…you just have to take chances if you want to create a social life for yourself.Of course along the way you also have to realise that there are people who are just not meant to be part of that social life!
So here’s to many more coffee dates…cheers!
